Following the news that the 2010 edition of Birmingham’s acclaimed annual Supersonic Festival will be headlined by SWANS, Capsule are hugely excited to announce the second headlining act, GODFLESH. Acclaimed by many as founders of the industrial metal movement, Godflesh will be returning to their Birmingham roots to play the band’s first UK show in over 10 years.

Tickets are now on sale! Featuring band members Justin Broadrick (ex-Napalm Death and Head of David) and Benny Green (ex-Fall of Because), Godflesh will be bringing their crushing, apocalyptic sound back home to Birmingham in their first UK show since they disbanded in 2002. “We cannot even recall specifically the first Birmingham Godflesh show. Oddly, we think it was supporting Suicide in 1988, just after the release of our first Mini LP on Swordfish, the record label of Birmingham’s best record shop. So it’s only natural that the first Godflesh UK show in its original form in over 10 years, comes home to its birthplace, and for whom better than Supersonic, the organisation responsible for keeping Birmingham on the map with underground music, be it metal or otherwise. It is with great pleasure that Godflesh returns to its roots.” – Justin Broadrick, Godflesh

This rare and exceptional performance by GODFLESH forms part of a series of line up announcements for Supersonic 2010 with many more exciting acts and artists to be revealed in the coming weeks and months. Moving from its previous July weekend date to October from 2010 onwards, Supersonic will once again take place in and around the Custard Factory in the heart of Eastside, Birmingham, utilising converted factory warehouses and art galleries and offering up-close, intimate settings to showcase some of the most exciting music out there.

Capsule’s passion for genre bending sound and performances is at the heart of all their events – there are not many places where you can listen to funeral doom, prog, folk, avant jazz and grindcore in one weekend. In recent years Supersonic Festival has attracted such names as Italian horror movie soundtrack legends Goblin, Mogwai, Sunn 0))) and Krautrock forefathers Harmonia, early performances by Battles, LCD Sound System and OM, and the first UK shows for many international artists including Harvey Milk (USA), Corrupted (Japan) and Goblin (Italy)

Make sure you pick up your ticket if you have not done so already, this event come so highly recommended.

Melvins lovin’

1 Jun

There is a good reason why so many people adore the Melvins. It is because they are a ruddy great band, that’s why. They are the most punk sludge rockers that I have ever encountered, constantly surprising their audience with each new album and never quite fitting into the moulds that people believe them to be part of. Intentional or not this is a great thing, it makes every Melvins return an exciting one and I for one will never ever tire of them.

With their new album The Bride Screamed Murder hitting the shops as we speak I wanted to share some recent press with you, the recent Terrorizer review hits the nail on the head as does the 9/10 NME review of last week…and as for the Subba Cultcha feature which was published today, well that truly brings out the best in Buzz.

Now surely you don’t need more persuading, what are you waiting for???
